or stimulus. it's barack obama or george w. bush, but it's not that simple, not that satisfying. one cause however does stand out amongst many. cheap and ample credit. for years the ability of almost every working american to access more credit than they should have been able to, masked the underlying fact that lower and middle class incomes were not rising. people felt and in many cases actually were wealthier than their salaries or socioeconomic
. he is a former speech writer for george w. bush. i would wonder whether the romney campaign wanted to be booed at the naacp. that whole line, could he maybe been aiming at his own base with that one? >> i asked the romney campaign that very question when we had a chance to talk with them. they did not respond to that question but were peppered with so many questions i think they were having trouble answering all of them. they didn't have time to answer all of them. i will say that mitt romney did get a lot of conservative props on twitter and social media for coming to this group and sticking to his principles and policy positions. he did not tailor his speech. he said he would repeal the president's signature legislative achievement, that is the health care law and tipped off a number of other iemts. and so even the leadership of the naacp that i talked to after this event were saying mitt romney showed a lot of courage in coming here today. >> speaking of props you eluded to this. this is something in which romney got a much better response. take a listen. >> any policy that lift

the president is. the president i think faces a reality much like george w. bush did in 2004. it is absence on bigger recovery. it is entirely possible he will get to election day without 50% of the voters saying they approve. some increment of voters he has to find a way to convince them to stick with him. the way you do that is by making the challenger up acceptable to voters. this struggle between the two sides to defind what the bain experience is whether it shows romney to be someone who has personified the problem i think is going to be a central tipping point in this race. >> even republican alabama governor robert bentley is chiming in saying release the tax returns although now he is saying his words is taken out of context. are republicans in large numbers also questioning romney's approach here? >> a few other conservative commentators, what romney is doing is somewhat unusual. he drew a very hard line saying you are not getting anymore tax returns from 2010 and 2011. the tax returns, the bain experience and offshore accounts is all part of one kind of broad set of issues that th
by the word choice, what he says or also by his body language? no one can forget president george w. bush 9/11 when he was in front of the classroom and you could see the demeanor of the president once we learned that information that he received the demeanor of him. that was as indelible as any word could have been. >> there is no dou the pictures here, the television matters. the sense of empathy that a president is able to convey by what he says and how he acts these are important things. i think going forward it becomes more important in terms of how he shows that he is a healer for the country. this is especially difficult now that we are in the middle of a very contentious political season where the president and candidate romney are not being very much healers. they are going at it and fighting pretty hard a moment like this makes that kind of politicking that much more discorted. >> very appreciated. >>> a lot of us are counting down to the olympic games. the opening ceremony is friday. the summer games are challenging athletes. it is also coinciding with the muslim holy month. it m

clinton took out two war heroes, george bush and bob doyle. when senator john kerry fell to george w. bush. when barack obama beat john mccain. military service doesn't translate to being essential to being the commander in chief. >> here is what translates, dollars and cents. the president, just yesterday, if they didn't reach a compromise in terms of the pentagon the number is $500 billion. the pentagon will be forced to cut $500 billion. president obama said it was the republicans who were, i'm quoting the president, playing politics with our military. they have to get serious about cutting the deficit to bolster our u.s. men and women who are serving. what do we expect. how will mitt romney hit back? >> reporter: i think least going to definitely point out as something he said before that he would try to act to stop sequestration. they think it gets chopped out of the budget. this is a cut on what's estimated to be the budget over the next decaddecade. this isn't a one time chop. a lot of people in the pentagon will argue the pentagon can't make those cuts anymore. you have this battle
and that was not appealing to suburban white women. then governor george w. bush ran in 2000 with compassionate conservativism and that was a lot more appealing to those constituents. so really what mitt romney is doing is not necessarily to get significant numbers of black votes but to say to independent voters out there, i am reaching out. i'm not simply trying to be only looking at one ethnic group when it comes to the gop. i think that's really what the intention is to say i'm open, have open arms to reach out to many other people. >> how has he been received when you talk to folks there? what do they say? >> well, it was interesting because when he walked in about a half of the room stood up. about half didn't. then of course as he went to the speech he got tepid applause some places and okay applause other places but two areas where he got i think the loudest applause really dealt with, one, when he began to talk about the importance of family. when he said that if you wait to have a child until you're 21 years of age you have a 2% chance of being in poverty. then he said he was going to
to president george w. bush. used to be his budget director. pawlenty's risk is attack on romney. and bobby jindal's is faith-based extremism in the fact that he's written about spiritual warfare among other things. ted frank is not working with the romney campaign but what issues did he say he would look for if he were doing the vetting process? >> that's the kind of stuff you look at. the purpose of the vetting process, part of it is to uncover any skeletons. you're doing it so you have a full plate of information so you can sort of be ready to respond to the inevitable attacks. anything you find your opponent will find so in the case of bobby yin dal he wrote this article once. if romney were to pick jindal he wants to have jindal prepared to answer those questions. same thing with pawlenty. there are videos of pawlenty saying negative things about romney. romney campaign wants to know every one of those videos, what they are so when the dnc releases one of them they will have a response ready. it's a question of being fully able to respond toni attack likely to come down the road. >> ja
president george w. bush's administration and we talked about syria and other failing states around the world and hayden says he is convinced syria needs the attention of the united states and other world powers. take a listen. >> this looks like even from the outside the problem from hell and i don't think anyone in or out of the administration believes what it is we're doing now is or will be sufficient. so i fear we and other members, responsible members of the international community, are going to face some very difficult choices because right now we have stasis between the government and the opposition at a horrific level of violence. that just can't be sustained. >> what would you recommend in that position today? >> who are these folks? so we can have some reasonable confidence that what follows the assad regime isn't as bad or even worse. frankly, i'm a little troubled right now. this is a bit, the assad regime against the sunnies and other groups in syria are on the sidelines. the kurds for one. the christians. the drus. that would trouble me that this has the earmarks of a
. if you think back to history. george h.w. bush or others, usually it's republican presidents who vow to do more. really that's flipped and now you have the republicans saying they're going to be more arm in arm and the others claiming it's in their interest. >> you know, ron, let's backtrack to the uk. when he was there, he talked about a special relationship but he caught a lot of heat from the british. there was a lot of comments about the preparation for the olympics. >> was that trip positive or negative? >> unee kievically negative. kind of a modern tradition. it's supposed to be the tennis without a net part. it's supposed to kind of elevate you and convince voters in the u.s. to be commander in chief. he's had a pretty rocky time of it. criticized by dave cameron who's a conservative tiff. even more so, the mayor of london who's the william f. buckley of politics. even today's comments about iran and romney kind of fuzzing it, i mean this has not been a kind of demonstration of steadiness, a mention they were going to send. >> ron brown steen, good insight, thank you. ron. >>
and george h.w. bush. they had a couple of big historic accomplishments. because they didn't win reelection they are considered losers and not considered historic presidencies. you have to win the second term to be in the history books the way that say reagan was. for obama his health care law he has to be the guy, the president that implements that if he wants to salvage and save the health care law he probably has to win the second term. >> thanks so much. >> thank you, poppy. >>> one other sign of how bad the u.s. economy still is, large numbers of mexican workers are giving up on the american dream and returning home. the first trade route to the west, the greatest empires. then, some said, we lost our edge. well today, there's a new new york state. one that's working to attract businesses and create jobs. a place where innovation meets determination... and businesses lead the world. the new new york works for business. find out how it can work for yours at last season was the gulf's best tourism season in years. in florida we had more suntans... in alabama we had more bea
, have promised to move the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. neither george w. bush nor bill clinton followed through but in this exclusive interview mitt romney tells our wolf blitzer he will make that happen if he's elected. >> reporter: do you consider jerusalem to be the capital of israel? >> yes, of course. a nation has the compass itty to choose its own capital city and jerusalem is israel's capital. >> reporter: if you become president of the united states would you move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem? >> i think it's long been the policy of our country to have our embassy in the nation's capital, jerusalem. the decision to actually make the move is one, if i were president, i would want to take in consultation with the lead r leadership of the government which exists at that time. so i would follow the same policy we have in the past, our embassy would be in the capital but the timing of that is something i would want to work out with the xwoft. >> reporter: with the government of israel? >> with the government of israel. >> reporter: they have asked every u.s.
's interesting to point out, too, liberals love to accuse former president george w. bush of destroying our personal liberties but whose privacy policies do you find more worrisome now -- president bush, president obama? where do you stand? >> president obama definitely has a different take on privacy and transparency. on his first day in office he issued a memo saying that transparency would kind of trump his overall administration. he really wanted documents to be out in the public. however, as an agency, as an organization epic has constantly come up against obstacles and hurdles to getting those documents and assimilating them to the public. so i think there is definitely a difference between what the obama administration has said they were going to do and what has happened in practice. >> so upholding the promise of transparency, are you happy with what he's done or no? >> we believe he's taken steps. we aren't happy with where we are right now. we really should be a lot further along. >> amie, thank you. >>> she is from california, he is from alabama. together they are the civil wars.
. >> you bet. >> seems like everyone has an opinion on the economy, including that man. what george w. bush is doing to showcase his ideas about improving our economy. our current dividend tax rate will expire this year, sending taxes through the roof and hindering economic recovery. the consequences? millions of americans will see their taxes on dividend income spike, slowing investment in u.s. companies and jeopardizing development in energy projects that create american jobs. ask congress to stop a dividend tax hike -- for all of us. here at the hutchison household. but one dark stormy evening... there were two things i could tell: she needed a good meal and a good family. so we gave her what our other cats love, purina cat chow complete. it's the best because it has something for all of our cats! and after a couple of weeks she was healthy, happy, and definitely part of the family. we're so lucky that lucy picked us.

of the vote in the hispanic community. in 2004, in the general election, george w. bush got 44% of the vote. so it is going to be interesting to watch this time. recent gallup poll showed how more and more hispanics are actually feeling disenfranchised with both parties and are -- may vote in the -- may be independent at this point. so i think our vote is definitely up for grabs. that said, like you're saying, president obama is showing like he is ahead obviously in the polls in our community. thank you so much for joining us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you, carol. thank you so much. >>> still ahead, when it comes to your vote, if you don't like your partiers a candidate is it okay to vote for him anyway because you can't stand the other guy? that is our talk back question of the day. ♪ you want to save money on car insurance? no problem. you want to save money on rv insurance? no problem. you want to save money on motorcycle insurance? no problem. you want to find a place to park all these things? fuggedaboud it. this is new york. hey little guy, wake up! aw, come off it mat
cover about a different republican presidential candidate. the magazine famously labeled george h.w. bush a wimp. guess what? he went onto win the white house. one of the questions we have today is this just a big publicity stunt by a magazine to get readers, and what do they mean behind wimp any way? >> he is wishy washy of the most important issues of today, on pro-life versus pro-choice, on immigration. >> politicians, if we had a dollar for every politician who changed their position on an issue, we could both retire from our jobs. >> one or two issues, sure. not six. not seven, not the most important issues. not every single one of the most important issues of our time. >> newsweek may consider it pandering but romney's tough talk delivered in jerusalem was anything but wishy washy. he was strong and forceful and not wimpy at all. >> now is then the conduct of iran's leaders gives us no reason to trust them with nuclear material. today the regime in iran is five years closer to developing nuclear capability. preventing that outcome must be our highest national security priority
, the kennedys, george h.w. bush involved in children's charities so you can't paint a broad brush and say rich people are meaner because they have these qualities that make them rich and they are carrying them out and getting meaner through time. >> oh, yeah, not at all. in fact, the sort of leading indicator of how much money you give to charity is how much money you make in the first place so that strongly correlates as well but there's another bit of research out of the university of minnesota that takes a different approach. they -- they called -- it's called money priming, so you sit in a room and the screen saver on the computer is flashing dollar bills, or monopoly money out on the table while you fill out the questionnaire. you leave the room and you bump into somebody who is working for the researcher and the person drops all these pencils and they found out people who were in the room with the money, been money primed pick up 15% fewer of the pencils, just sort of becomes not their problem. their focus is elsewhere, so, yeah, it's interesting stuff. >> it is interesting, and the arti
